My wife and I stayed at the Alamo one October weekend in the off season. It was great! The price was right and it was within a short driving distance of the beach at Assateague where i went to surf and convenient to Ocean City downtown. Not only that, it was right next door to a place to get coffee...

We went down for the first annual bike week. When we went into the rooms, it was horrible. We ran out to the CVS and bought roach bombs. Hours after letting them off, we returned to find a spider the size of Texas crawling across the bed. He must have thought it was a sprinkler. A guy from 2 rooms...

Oh My God, sleep in your car, I would have, but we were on bikes! We sat out on the bench all night, and my poor boyfriend doesn't drink, but I had to drink my fair share. It was so disgusting, someone else's stuff was still in the room. They told us someone was a regular there. I'll tell you,...

The Alamo is the worst motel on this side of god's green earth. We spent $225.00 for two nights of pure unsanitary conditions rating from a toilet that did not work, no hot water, no television, and the list could go on... not to mention the seedy characters that were walking around late at night. I really thought that I...

After coming home from Ocean City I read the reviews and some are dated 2005 and nothing has changed. This was the filthiest room I have ever been in. No telephone, no curtains at the windows only a mini blind, laminate on the floors that was buckled. All of this could have been tolerable it it had been clean. The...

A word to the wise - - don't even bother stopping here!!! Unfortunately, we booked a group at this motel because Ocean City, Maryland was totally sold out. I called the motel directly beforehand and questioned reviews I had read and was told to ignore those reviews. "They were disgruntled travelers. The place was nice." Obviously he must have been...

People stay at Alamo, because they are cheap. They pay little money, and want to get the best service, and rooms like in five star hotel. Don't complain if you don't have enough brains to book another hotel. You get what you pay for.
